Do you have a garden?

I've been working on getting our garden planted the past week. I haven't had a full day of being able to plant so it's been a little bit here and there. 

So far I have 40 tomato plants, 24 cabbage plants, 4 celery plants, 4 jalepeno pepper plants, 4 sweet bell pepper plants, chocolate mint, orange mint, 2 varieties of sage, chamomile, chives, Kentucky mint, oregano and dill plants, 24 strawberry plants, 3 different varieties of lettuce. As for seeds I have 3 varieties of beets, 3 varieties of eggplant, turnips, radishes and carrots. I still have squash and pumpkin to plant yet. I also have two rhubarb plants and two asparagus plants. 

I will use the tomatoes to make sauce and the cabbage for sauerkraut, canning both. The rest is for eating and sharing. 

Do you have a garden? What do you have planted?

I have 12 patio tomatoes in a container and 2 bell pepper and 2 sweet bell pepper plants also in containers. My dad plants a huge 1/2 acre garden and my mom's coworker plants a acre garden and they give us tons of stuff so I just do a few tomatoes because ss and dd could eat tons of them and the bell peppers were a mothers day gift.

I currently have 2 rows of snow peas, and 3 rows of carrots in the garden.  We'll be putting tomatoes and bell peppers in there, too.  (It is small.)  In planters, I have peppermint and parsley.  I'm planning to pick up some basil and maybe some lavendar and/or oregano to add to these pots.  I'm also going to ask my mom to bring me some lemon balm to put in with the peppermint.  We also have onions, asparagus, rhubarb, raspberries, and chives planted in various areas.

wow!!! what a garden you have!

I just planted one, it was a lovely mother's day gift in large horse watering trophs.

Small, tomatoes, watermelons, cantelope, and cucumbers. I also have alot of herbs that i sue often just decoratively around our yard.

I'm hoping I don't kill the garden. I usually do.
